Shop Apocalypse: Pritchard's Lifesaver Bottle

Michael Pritchard, an English inventor, has created the best solution for purifying polluted drinking water across the world that I have come across yet. The Lifesaver systems filter the water through a nano-material with holes that are 15nm in diameter, enabling the system to filter out all harmful bacteria and even the smallest viruses.

Prichard gave a demonstration of this device at TED in July of 2009. Useful for anyone traveling the world where the creatures in the water don't suit your GI tract.
